Juice of one Lemon (about 2 Tbsp)

Grill Mate Roasted Garlic Seasoning (to taste)

1 cup Zatarain's Fish-Fry

1 large egg

1/2 cup milk

2 pounds catfish filets


Pour correct amount of oil into a deep fryer or fry-daddy and preheat to 325 degrees.  If you don't have a deep fryer, use a heavy skillet, but fill no more than 1/3 full.  Heat on medium-high heat to 350 degrees.

Season fish with the roasted garlic seasoning - generously.  Allow to sit for 10 minutes to "marinate."  Meanwhile, mix milk,k creole mustard, egg and lemon juice in a shallow dish.  Sprinkle batter over fish then dip fish into mustard mixture.  Coat with remaining fish-fry.  Carefully add to hot oil, a few pieces at a time.

Fry four minutes until golden brown.  Drain on paper towels.  Sprinkle with black pepper just before serving.
